If you have a new diagnosis or would like to discuss a change in approved accommodations, please request an appointment with Ability Services to initiate a review for eligible accommodations.
During Fall and Spring semesters, requests for accommodations need to be completed approximately 5 weeks before the end of the term. Any requests made past the deadline will be at the discretion of the Ability Services Manager to determine if accommodations can be offered for the rest of the semester. For more information on this deadline, please review the "Accommodation Deadline Request Policy" found on our Policies page.
